Could YOUR painting could be the next big find?
A small unsigned oil was purchased in a Northland junk shop for $5.
After careful research the painting was attributed by Fine Art Society New Zealand director, Grant Bezett, to the important Canadian artist Lawren S. Harris (1885 - 1970).
Following publicity prior to the auction this attribution was supported by the recognised Canadian authorities on the work of Lawren Harris.
The interest generated by the story of the painting’s discovery ensured spirited bidding which saw it top its high estimate, selling for $58,000
